FILE MANAGER                                                                                                               28 How To Change Permission Settings on Files and Directories: 1. From within the File Manager screen, click on any of the Permission Setting links for the desired file or directory.  The Change Permission screen displays. 2. The Change permission of file or directory name message indicates which file or directory permissions you are changing.  Once a directory's permissions are set, you can access specific sub-directories and files within the directory to alter the settings on an individual basis. 3. Notice in the Change Permission screen the nine-digit setting is split up into the groups that were discussed earlier: Owner, Group and Others. 4. As the owner of the file or directory, typically you should have full access, so all three settings r, w, x (read, write, execute) should be selected.
